Systems and Process Control (10b)

#64 - Future Directions in Systems and Control (10B07)
This session aims to examine new directions for process control research. After the two decades of intensive research on model predictive control, which has achieved a certain level of maturity by now, the process control community is looking for a new concept or methodology that will have the same kind of far-reaching and enduring impact on academic research and industrial practice. Presentations will be sought on promising approaches that have the potentials of bringing a paradigm shift or opening a brand new application area for process control, to spawn a wide range of research activities in the community.
